Fight Night!

A new experience presented itself to me this weekend - the boxing! I have never been to watch live boxing before and when Alex and I were invited along to support one of his friends I jumped at the opportunity of a new subject to add to my growing sports portfolio. I was delighted when, upon our arrival, one of the coaches got me an 'access all areas' wristband which enabled me to position myself ringside! I proceeded to snap away during the matches and had a great time chatting to the tog from one of the boxing magazines who was covering the evening. I stayed away from the flash and shot on an ISO of 1600 to try and emulate the classic pictures I have seen of old greats such as Marciano and Foreman. I was well and truly chuffed with my efforts and even more pleased and flattered to see some of the competitors use my pics on their Facebook profiles!
